I am hungry, though... not just for enchiladas

Hello,

I love Blake Lively aka Serena van der Woodsen :-), always have, always will. I like her looks, her natural flair, her clothing... If I were a man SHE would be my dream woman.






I recently discovered she is behind the site 'PRESERVE.US'. It's a lifestyle website, kind of similar description to Gwyneth's Goop site. But I think content wise; Goop and Preserve are two different sites. One woman is over her forties and the other one in her twenties. That shows. I do love both sites as I am in my thirties :-).




Blake describes her own website in a really nice quote: "The function of Preserve is part magazine, part e-commerce hub, part philanthropic endeavour and above all, a place to showcase the power of imagination, ingenuity, quality, and above all, people."

You can save your favourite articles in a special drawer, that's what I like the most! The shop is amazing as well. You can buy everything from necklaces to ketchup, all within a reasonable price range.



Preserve also aims to provide “5,000 children a meal, 2,000 children a blanket, and 2,700 children a warm hoodie, all within the US”. All bits and pieces can help. It is a nice gesture.

So please check it out and let me know what you think!

Espadrilles pour les filles!

Hello,

I can't stop thinking about 'La Douce France'. We used to go on holiday in Saint-Remy-de-Provence. The nicest weather, the best food and such a beautiful view!


The people are so friendly and they all wear espadrilles!



I love them so much. As a child I got a pair each summer. They are so comfortable, fashionable and available in so many colours and styles.


Here are some of my favourites:

Topshop

Chanel

Mr Porter

Asos

Maxi Skirts for Maxi Summer Fun!

Hi there,

Summer is all about comfortable clothing! One of my favorite items is the Maxi skirt! Instant glamour, if you ask me! I'm a tall girl, so it's not so easy for me to find a skirt that's long enough, but at JBC I have found my match! I love it. It's a see-through printed fabric with a mini-skirt underneath. They also have it in Black. I can't wait to wear it!

Personally I think a flat sandal is the best shoe-option for this item. I like to wear it in a casual way.

These are few combo's I made:





So what do you think?

Accessorize Your Summer

Hello there,

I love summer so much. The fewer clothes you wear, the more you can accessorize!

I'm so in love with big necklaces, they can make a simple tank top look so fashionable. The bigger the better!

Here are some gorgeous ones!















What kind of necklaces do you like?

Sleeveless is Back!

Almost summer, almost holidays, free time, playground time, sangria's, barbeque's, pool party's, festivals... I really cant wait!!! We are not going on a holiday this year; the renovation of our house is taking too much time and money, so we are staying in pretty little Belgium :-)

I have been dreaming of summer for a while now. I am a graphic designer for JBC and as part of the online team I have been seeing some really nice summershirts in our collection.

I really love the sleeveless shirts. They are completely back in fashion! You can buy them in different colours and prints! I especially love them because they are loose fitting around the waist and still very on-trend! Very important for young mums :-)

These are my favourites:

Sleeveless shirt - €9,90

Sleeveless shirt - €29,90

Sleeveless shirt - €9,90

Sleeveless shirt - €9,90


What do you think? Do you like them? What is your favourite summer item?

Met my Match

Last night was one of the biggest nights in Fashion! 'THE 2014 MET GALA'
I'm not really blown away by the ensembles worn on the red carpet.

I thought Leighton Meester in Emilio Pucci was by far the Best Dressed one. I really love the vintage feel of the dress! I WANT this dress! The gold, the embellishments, the cut... Wow!

And then we had Sandra Lee... I don't even want to know who made this horrible dress. It's Cinderella going extremely bad. Someone vomited a lot of silver satin fabric over her. Please take it off!!!

Day of Happiness

Hello

What a beautiful day to be named 'International Day of Happiness'

I've heard Pharell a thousand times today, but I don't care. I'm in such a good mood. The weather is nice, spring is in the air, I'm feeling healthy and I lost some inches :-)

I'm so proud of myself. I started running again after I had surgery for my umbilical hernia. It's week 4 and I haven't missed any run. I'm so happy I started with some of my colleagues. We go every monday before work and every thursday straight after work. On Saturday I go on my own. It's such a motivation when you run with other people. I wouldn't be able to push myself to run in the evening after the household jobs and putting the children to bed. So thank you my dearest colleagues!

I haven't lost any weight, but my jeans are fitting me so much better than before! I feel healthier, in a better mood, less grumpy and full of energy. I recommend some other people should also start running :-)

My husband had the idea of buying a whole new outfit for running. Thank You Pieter! It motivates you so much more!

What do you think of my running shoes? Cool, right?!
